MID-YEAR RETREAT: KC
MYR 2021 - Kansas City, MO
Details Coming Soon! We are kicking off planning with Kansas City team as we speak.
Ad 2 National Mid-Year Retreat (MYR) is one of two national events hosted annually by Ad 2 National. MYR is an opportunity to learn what's happening at the national level, connect with fellow leaders and peers across the nation, and to exchange ideas/learn best practices for club operations.
The retreat programming is geared toward current Ad 2 leaders (Presidents, local board members, and comittee members), though it is open to anyone who is an Ad 2 member. In limited cases, Ad 2 National will invite individuals who are not necessarily Ad 2 members, but are looking to start a club.
MYR is an in-person event held late October or first weekend in November, and hosted by a local Ad 2 club selected at the Ad 2 National Board of Directors meeting the preceeding Admerica.
